Geoff's devout belief HIV forebodes AIDS and hell is challenged and turned. In mortal anguish, Aden waits for his secret blood test. Morag tricks him to a snooker game to force him to tell her why he resents the military, or his relatives in it. After a complaint from Melody's mother, Bartlett reprimands Miles for correcting the junior classes medical ignorance about HIV. The tremor has cracked the war monument, revealing a time capsule which Colleen's historical society opens. Written by

It's interesting to see how our three "religious" characters react to Cassie's HIV status:Annie thinks she did something bad, Melody seems ignorant but still worried about her, Geoff sees it as a personal failure and thinks she's beyond redemption.Tellingly, it only takes a few words from someone they respect to get them to change their minds (although Annie is actually half right...).Martin does have a point, however, when he tells Miles he went too far.Cassie still doesn't really seem to be facing up to what she's done and is kept shielded from the fallout, then has Geoff come round and be nice to her anyway.
The show continues trying to convince us that Aden isn't as bad as he, well, is.It does this by the tried and tested method of turning him into a victim and making us feel sorry for him and also by getting someone we like, namely Morag, on his side.It doesn't quite work since he treats her as badly as he does everyone else but there are hints that he's covering up something traumatic here.
The episode ends with the revelation that Colleen is Alf and Morag's sister.It does at least give her a reason to exist and to interact with characters that probably wouldn't give her the time of day in real life but their expressions are hilarious.
